Last Stop: The French Riviera

The last stop on the GTI tour of SKEMA campuses was in Sophia Antipolis, which is located near the French Riviera. The weather here is much more pleasant than in the north, and it’s easy to see why this is a popular destination for tourists and students alike.

The campus near nice includes many classrooms and student lodging and cafeteria’s nearby. It is located in a technology park that is similar to RTP. The presentations to the students at the Sophia Antipolis campus, as well as a videoconference with the students currently studying in the Suzhou, China campus, round out the week of pre-departure orientations for the students who will be arriving in Raleigh in about 5 weeks time.

The GTI is excited about welcome all the new and returning students to the NC State campus. See you in January!
